Perhaps my favorite two tracks on the album are two and nine--the fun "Something for Cat" and the beautifully romantic "Holly," respectively. I also think they are paricularly representative of the album--being about as different as they can be from one another despite sharing a composer. The album, like these two songs, inspires a range of emotional responses not typically found on the soundtrack albums of today.
As someone else pointed out, the album is lacking some of the beautiful film versions of "Moon River" (including that sung by Audrey Hepburn), but the two that are present are nice enough. I don't really like the Lawrence Welk-ish vocals in the version on track one, but it still shines. The version on the last track is great fun for fans of Mancini's more latin-esque material which can also be found in "Loose Caboose," "Latin Golightly," and the aforementioned "Something for Cat."
More fun tracks include "Hub Caps and Tail Lights"(the theme from the strip clubs), the great jazzy song "The Big Heist," and the pop-sixties-asian-influenced "Mr. Yunioshi."
Fans of slower, more jazzy sounds will enjoy "Holly," "Sally's Tomato," and the title track "Breakfast at Tiffany's."
There are, in fact, not really any songs on the album that I *don't* like! I may have to be in particualr moods for certain of them (and "Moon River" invariably makes me cry), but this is definitely a classic soundtrack album filled with wonderful songs for lovers of sixties films and the music of Henry Mancini.
But just as Being Myself of Lena horne, this kind of CD gets better and better, the more often I play it.
This really is the smooth and hip early 60ies style, with a big S for style.
Moonriver is breathtaking, and many other songs are really nice as well.
And can anyone please tell me why beautiful movies and soundtracks like this are not made anymore???

I just want to be sure people are clear about this disc. It is not the actual soundtrack and does not use any of the music from the film. Read morePublished 3 months ago by johnf
While the music on here is pleasant, this is NOT the soundtrack for the movie. This is Henry Mancini playing around with some of the musical cues and inventing others.Published 13 months ago by Michael Poirier
